How to Reuse an Old Tablecloth

So I’m reading my issue of House Beautiful (which I got for free because Budget Living Magazine tanked) and I found these great tips on how to make your own duvet cover and shower curtain using a old table cloths.

Here’s how to do it:

Duvet Cover: Find an oversize old tablecloth. Measure a queen duvet cover. Take a white linen (or any white sheet) and mark it off with the measurements. Pin the tablecloth to it. Cut off excess fabric. Sew them together to make a pocket.

Shower Curtain: Stitch together a different colored fabric onto the back of a tablecloth. Use a sewing machine to make buttonholes on top of the curtain. You can also use a kit to install grommets, making sure they’re evenly spaced. Hang with decorative hooks and a hotel or plastic liner.
